If you take a sensible and structured approach to your game of casino online poker then you are probably playing a tight-aggressive game. This is smart…very smart.
Imagine you are playing in a full ring game. There could be nine or ten players seated at the table. Theoretically, one or two of these players are going to be dealt a great hand at least once per orbit. If you decide to be clever and play every hand, then doesn’t it stand to reason that you will be up against a better hand the vast majority of the time? By taking this route you need to have something else going for you. You need to either be smarter than your opponents, or have position on your opponents.
There is another issue that you find when you play tight. You are not playing that many pots and so your chip stack will slowly be eaten away by the blinds, unless you hit a rush of great cards. This makes it important that when you do play a hand you play it hard. You play to win. You play for keeps. This way your stack will grow and this gives you more breathing room. It allows you to keep your shape and within your tight starting range of hands. If you are opening on the loose side then how can you play your hands hard?
By choosing your cards wisely and playing each hand hard, hopefully your decisions on the felt will be simpler. Simple poker is always the best form of poker.
